The Straight Story ★★★

What an interesting Lynch film. It is almost the opposite in tone and pose, with most of his work harboring a menacing, dark tone, compared to this movie, where we all wonder at how the world could be if everyone we meet is kind and generous (also weird to see it sponsored by Disney!). Of course, it wouldn’t be a Lynch film without the occasional eccentric characters and odd events, like the twins, the random fire extinguishing exercise, the woman who cannot avoid hitting deers on the road, etc.
